Nutritional Information FAQs

Where can I find nutritional information on Starbucks retail products?

You can find out what goes into our beverages and fresh food items in our Nutrition section. If you don’t find what you’re looking for there, click on our Customer Service page or give us a call at 1-800-23LATTE (235-2883). We’d be happy to answer any questions you have.

Why has the calorie count changed on many of your beverages?

The information on this website and our “Nutrition by the Cup” brochure is now based on what customers are actually served. Previously, nutritional information, including calories, was derived by adding up the documented totals of different ingredients – which didn’t take into account the variations that can occur as a result of individually handcrafting our beverages. The revised information is the result of a rigorous process of testing beverages made to our in-store guidelines – which actually gives more accurate results for what is in an average cup.

Why do I need to enter my location to get nutritional information for food?

Most of our markets are serviced by local bakeries to assure the freshest product. Telling us your state or province helps us provide the most accurate information for food offerings at your local Starbucks.

Why would I choose the Frappuccino® Light blended beverage over the original Frappuccino®?

Though not entirely sugar-free, the beverage base for the Frappuccino® Light blended beverage is lower in sugar, fat and calories than the original Frappuccino® formula.

How can I make my drink lower in fat?

Request your beverage be made with nonfat milk and ask the barista to hold the whipped cream.

How do I reduce sugar in my beverage?

Use a sugar substitute like Splenda®. If your beverage contains syrup, opt for one of our sugar-free syrups: vanilla, hazelnut or cinnamon dolce. Or if you’re having one of our standard syrups, you can always ask for a little less.

Allergen and Kosher FAQs

Where can I find allergen information?

Allergen information is currently unavailable online for our beverage selections.  We are actively working to bring that information to you.  If you have an allergen concern, please feel free to ask our baristas to check the ingredient labels or click on our Customer Service page. We cannot guarantee that any of our beverages are allergen free because we use shared equipment and handle allergens throughout the store.

Are your beverages kosher?

No – although most of our beverage components are certified kosher. Since we cannot prepare kosher beverages in our stores, we have not made a concerted effort to have all of our beverages ingredients certified.
